Dynalite offers Ethernet connectivity

Dynalite says it can provide Ethernet connectivity between its serial bus network, DyNet, Dynalite control systems and third-party technologies, with its 100BT Ethernet gateway series. The 10/100Base T Ethernet interface comprises three compact and lightweight models, DNG100BT, DDBG100BT and DMNG100BT.

The series is available in a variety of housings and mounting options including wall, shelf and DIN-rail mounting options, and a selection of enclosure types, including steel, polycarbonate and plastic.

It supports TCP/IP protocol with either static or DHCP-assigned IP addressing. The gateway’s ‘routing mode’ enables multiple units to be linked via point-to-point or broadcast modes, while its integrated web server permits browser-based control.

Dynalite says the series is a key element of its end-to-end solution-set. This distributed control system comprises a range of controllers, multi-function occupancy and light-level sensors, user interface panels and switches, a PC-based graphical control and monitoring interface, plus Dynalite’s DyNet network.

The 100BT gateways can be linked to touch-screens or HMIs for displaying and analysing diagnostic data. Further flexibility is provided by two power-supply options, units with an integrated dedicated power supply are available, while there is also an option for a unit that can be powered by the DyNet network.

Equipped with a built-in programmable logic controller (PLC), the new 100BT DyNet-to-Ethernet gateway series can process conditional and sequential logic and arithmetic functions.
